Rate of Progress Second-Year students will meet the pace requirement by showing their Degree Requirements are at least 50% met (if they have 50 - 74 units attempted) OR at least 75% met (if they have 75 - 99 units attempted) by submitting a DegreeWorks Audit printout OR by submitting a DegreeWorks printout showing they have met with a counselor and have a "locked" educational plan to follow. Failure to establish pace will result in a financial aid disbursement hold for the award year.
Students in warning status are eligible for aid during the one warning quarter if all other eligibility criteria are met.
Students who fail to meet the satisfactory progress requirements at the end of the warning quarter, will become disqualified from aid.
Students who are in warning may have their financial aid delayed until in the new quarter until their status can be determined.
